Critic Notes

The 2015 Moulin a Vent Vieilles Vignes comes from 65- to 105-year-old vines and is matured in 20% new oak, the remainder second and third fill. It includes 30% whole bunch. It has a very opulent, almost overpowering bouquet of creme de cassis, heady and decadent. The palate is very sweet and chewy in the mouth, dense and demonstrative but to me missing the finesse and transparency that this wine ought to convey. It is trying to show a bit, when there is really no need to. Aug 2017, www.robertparker.com
